Reading comprehension in the general paper
Issue Date: 
Teaching and Learning, 6(1)18-22
The teaching of reading comprehension at the Pre-University level involves two stages. The first is the teaching of the various
reading and comprehension skills using short passages and paragraphs and the second stage is the application of these skills to
longer passages. The comprehension passages in the General Paper are generally about 700-800 words in length followed by questions on comprehension and vocabulary.
The teaching of this section of the General Paper has seldom been discussed. There could be as many approaches as there are teachers. While this is not necessarily bad, I feel that a standard approach is sometimes necessary for newteachers. This approach
can help these teachers tb conduct their lessons effectively when they are first asked to teach the subject. As they become more experienced, they may come up with their own approach or make changes to this basic approach according to the needs of the class. Like all approaches, this can only be a general one. Undoubtedly each class will have their differences, but I feel that the approach is generally applicable to all classes.
